Thanksgiving Point Farm

Today, we went to the Thanksgiving Point Farm.
Of course, we were there right at 9:45 so we would beat the rush.
We went with Tiffany, Catelyn and Matthew.

First, we went on the pony ride.

Aren't we cute? Doesn't Eli look like a natural?
I held him the entire time.

Then Tiff and Catelyn went on so we could coordinate photo taking.

Oh no! We were sent to jail.

But, they let us go and we went on a hay ride.
Then we looked at all of the animals, ate lunch and bought some icecream for 50 cents.

What has Eli been up to?

Well...he loves getting into my towel drawer. How will I ever be organized?

But...he is happy so I let him play.

He is walking a little...well he takes a few steps here and there.

Now, what is he getting into?

Oh my! Not my paper towels.

He loves to clap especially after he plays with his xylophone.

He loves playing in his pool.

And...he loves playing with the rocks outside.
Isn't he cute or what?

Silver Lake again?

It is true! I went to Silver Lake again.
This time I went with some other mommy's and their first born.
It was a lot of fun except for the fact that Eli didn't want to stay in his stroller.
You see...I don't have a Bjorn or carrier but I do have friends/family who own one so next time
I'll have to borrow one. Hopefully, he will stay in it and it won't be a bad experience.

Aren't we cute? Yes, I took this photo.

After our walk around the lake we ate our lunch. Eli wasn't interested in staying on the soft blanket.
He liked crawling around in the dirt, pine needles, etc. Fun stuff!

Anyway, it was a good day. And, this time I brought water, food, sunscreen and bug spray. Yippee!
I'm not a terrible mother.

Next week we are planning another hike so stayed tuned...

What has Eli been up to?

While I get ready in the morning, he loves to get into anything he sees even our tissue box.

Apparently, he isn't too keen on our swimming pool but loves his friend Jaymeson's pool. They stayed in for quite a long time while Emily and I chatted.

Aren't they cute or what?

And Emily has a dog and Eli wasn't afraid to touch it.

So cute!

Silver Lake

While Anne was here, we went to Silver Lake. It is about a 30 minute walk and is located next to the Brighton ski resort. Anne and I also went to the temple in the morning while daddy watched Eli. It was a very relaxing day. Next time, mommy will remember to bring water and bug spray. I wasn't prepared.

Downtown SLC

My mother n' law came to town so we headed to Downtown SLC. We had perfect weather while she was there. We were also able to go to BYU, the Aquarium and have FHE with Anne's friend Shaunna and her husband. It was really nice to have Anne (Nan) in our home. Thanks for coming!

Spaghetti Night

Yes, mommy lets Eli eat spaghetti on his own. Yes, it is messy. Yes, mommy cleans him up.

Eli is also standing on his own a lot more. He hasn't taken his first step yet but I'm sure it will be pretty soon.
